Auditions - Fear and Misery in the Third Reich
Audtions for our upcoming fall production are coming fast!
Fear and Misery in the Third Reich by Bertolt Brecht
Performance dates are November 10th-19th
The twenty-four scenes of this play could be regarded as separate playlets covering the years from 1933 to just before Hitler's entry into Vienna. Each is preceded and linked by a short verse, forming a sort of kaleidoscope of life under the Nazi dictatorship. The whole forms a horrifying picture of darkest tyranny, but is lightened by the occasional gleams of defiance. Brecht presents the vivid and changing scene of Hitler's war machine. There is a worker who only mumbles "Heil Hitlers" and a S.A. man whose suspicion of him is enough to mark him for life. There is an assaulted Jew who did no wrong and a judge who has a tragic inclination to be just. There are a mother and father who have good cause to fear that their son has informed on them. The war machine moves across Europe, bringing ruin and misery everywhere.
Auditions will be held on the Midlothian Campus, in the Green Room (T117). Please prepare a one to two minute contemporary monologue. Sides will also be available at auditions as well. Callbacks are to follow on Saturday, immediately after auditions.
